I installed the mdac 2.1 ODBC drivers on to my web server and it broke all
of the web sites that were using Read/Write to the Access databases. The
site that had Read-Only access to the database worked. After a little
testing I found that the some of the ASP scripts worked for the first
request, but returned error messages for any further requests in that
